I have a owncloud server hosted on debian, you can find the information below.
Since a few days I could not synchronize some data, the windows client is displaying 500 errors.
After a few search it seems the default SQLite database is the source of the issue.
I’ve read the documentation about the database conversion : https://doc.owncloud.org/server/8.1/admin_manual/configuration_database/db_conversion.html
But it seems a little too easy.
I’m not a great sysadmin and not a dbadmin so I have a few questions about the conversion process:
- Do I need to create a database on MySQL before the conversion ? if yes where can I find the corresponding command ?
- I know my Owncloud version is old, is it better to do the update before or after converting to MySQL database ?
- Is there any step by step tutorial or blog or something about the database conversion ?
Thanks for your help
